10:13 AM ET 04.14 | From the years carved into its band to the diamonds embedded behind the phrase "WORLD CHAMPIONS," the 73-gram ring the Cardinals will present to players today is crammed with history and ingenuity. It may also be the first championship ring to feature a squirrel. On the same side as the player's name, tucked between a home plate motif and the interlocking "STL" made out of African rubies, is a small, subtle squirrel. The "rally squirrel" is captured in full stride, same as he entered Cardinals' lore when he scampered across home plate during Skip Schumaker's at-bat in the National League division series against Philadelphia.

StL has 2 titles now in the 2000's....I would not call that a blind squirrel.

A shot and blow-up of the squirrel would have been nice.

If one weren't too shallow/clueless to read the entire article, you can get just that.

Why is someone who hates baseball posting on a baseball thread anyway?

I want one. Too bad I couldn't afford it even if they were for sale.

Those rings are very nice. The ruby Cardinal is the best part.

Just when I thought nothing could be more tacky than those Home Opener uniforms they wore Friday afternoon.

Those are some very specific numbers there. Most of us would have gone with $12,000 for the income and $400,000 for the condo. Bravo for your attention to detail.
